  • Microscopes
    • Using units
      • 1 km = 1000 m
      • 1 m = 100 cm
      • 1 cm = 10 mm
      • 1 mm = 1000 micrometres
      • 1 micrometre = 1000 nanometres
    • Calculations
      • Size of image =magnification x size of real object
      • Size of real object = size of image/magnification
      • Magnification = size of image/size of real object
    • Light Microscope
      • Can magnify around x2000
      • Has a resolving power of 200 nanometre (nm)
  • Light Microscope

    • Has a resolving power of 200 nanometre (nm)
  • Electron Microscope
    • Can magnify up to x2000000
